People who have a rare treasure should nurture it and treasure it.

That’s what we are asking you to do today - take care of Bury St Edmunds for today and for the future.

Bury St Edmunds is a beautiful town. It attracts thousands of visitors each year and has its showcase events such as the Festival and the Christmas Fayre.

We, as residents, have a duty to keep our town special. We are custodians of the medieval grid and the many architectural gems which dot the streets.

We can’t allow the scourge of graffiti, litter and the like to blight our little corner of West Suffolk which is why we are launching a campaign today called Let’s Be Proud of Bury.

With your help, we want to call time on vandalism and other anti-social behaviour before it escalates.

With your help, we can beat the mindless vandals who ‘tag’ our streets with their art without a thought for others.
